FALLBROOK — Richard Parry, 88, hit a hole-in-one on the 175-yard No. 2 hole at Fallbrook Golf Course on December 24.
A 35-year resident of Fallbrook, Parry started playing golf 60 years ago. He switched to tennis 20 years ago but recently returned to golf when he could no longer play tennis. He had only played three rounds of nine holes since taking up golf again.
Parry had two hole-in-ones 39 years ago when he was playing in Utah but said both were bad shots that turned out lucky. However, this latest hole-in-one was a good shot.
“I hate to admit I used a driver where I used to hit a five-iron,” Parry said. “I say it was mostly luck!”
